You can:

- declare the soap namespace on your stylesheet element and your code
will work as it is

or

- add the 'namespace' attribute to xsl:attribute and hard code the
soap namespace in there

or

- add the 'namespace' attribute to xsl:attribute and get the soap
namespace from the source using the various namespace related
functions
